1927 ~ Sepia Saturday

My mother was an only child.  How many mothers still count the months in their nine year old's ages?
Indeed, how many mothers keep such detailed albums?

I love these Saturday pics. I wish I could do the same thing, but my family kept very few photos. That is probably why I'm so fascinated with these Saturday family albums of yours. I'm also adopted and it's amazing to see a family with generations to look back on. Thanks for sharing with me.

These old pictures always make me feel like the world was a happier place 'way back when". You really have some great treasures Vicki!

I suspect your grandma was detailed in everything she did
what a lineage

Well, sometimes we complain when there isn't enough detail in the family records. Your grandmother certainly didn't disappoint there, did she?

I particularly like the shot with Chicago in the background. Very special photographs, indeed.

I love those old photos! We lost all our photos in Indonesia,but fortunately my mum had sent many photos to all our relatives in the Netherlands. So we got them back after the war when we returned to this country.

What wonderful photographs! I wonder how many of today's digital photo albums will be around that long?

I love all the clothes - a lovely glimpse of the past.

At one time in my life I used to attend estate sales quite frequently. What was amazing to me is that many times the family did not take the old photos. Isn't it wonderful that you have your old family photos. barbara

This album is a treasure -- and it's falling apart. I need to scan it and get it on a disk.

I'm fortunate in having so many family pictures around but I find I have to ration my viewing -- too much makes me sad for all that's over. It can be a bit overwhelming,

Wonderful to have the old pics and the details too! In today's world-most kids have to go to the computer to see their pics : )
